New luxury hotel coming to the shores of Lady Bird Lake

AUSTIN, Texas — A new luxury hotel is coming to the shores of Lady Bird Lake.

The Loren Hotel Group has already begun site work on The Loren at Lady Bird Lake, which will be located on the lake's shores between the pedestrian path across the Lamar Boulevard Bridge and Butler Park Pitch & Putt. To the south, the hotel will neighbor Zilker Park.

"We're excited to continue the success of The Loren Hotel brand by bringing our next venture to Austin, one of America's most exciting and fastest-growing cities – where we believe the luxury traveler is underserved," Stephen King, the group's founder, said. "As in Bermuda, where we've attracted a discerning international travel market, we expect to deliver the same focus on elevated service, appreciation for quality design and art and an impeccable location to appeal to international travelers and serve as a social hub for Austinites. Living, staying or dining here will be an unrivaled way to experience Downtown Austin and the park [Zilker]."
